This goal of this project is to help reduce the social isolation felt by many elderly people. We plan to do this by providing elderly beneficiaries with a companion who is dedicated to talking to them on a regular basis. Mutual will also offer engaging craft sessions where the elderly and their companions will create products that our team can then sell on their behalf to raise funds which will be reinvested in the care homes where the elderly people are living.

What Global Goals are we working towards?

3 – Good Health and Wellbeing

10 – Reduced Inequalities

How can you help us?

We are currently in the process of developing our business model in which we want to incorporate the Kaizen Model of Continuous improvement. We are looking to work with someone with expertise in this to help tailor our operating model to suit. We would also like to talk to someone about our marketing and engagement strategy for potential partnering companies and volunteers.
